Esby here, and I have a confession to make. I did not post Quote the Ravin' last week, I was hacked. My workflow usually consists of typing a bunch of stuff up that somebody else said, then taking a picture with my phone camera. The photo then posts to my yfrog account, where it gets Twittered, Facebooked, Digged, and Myspaced. Apparently somebody else
uploaded another quote blog first, which you can tell by examining the exif data and noting I would never, ever make fun of Sarah Palin.

Lastly, it only got one rec. I get at least five every week.

Wisconsin's governor Walker says concealed weapons will work as voter ID.

Sarah Palin to Chris Wallace.

Of course, the lame stream media ambushed Palin with gotcha questions like "Where are you going?" and "Why are you doing this?"

Everything is a gotcha question with her.

It doesn't make it a "gotcha" question just because it got ya.
Jon Stewart.
Even Piper was able to grasp the significance of being in the presence of our first President, who had such diverse interests, when she told me later how hard he must have worked to keep that farm going.
Sarah Palin.
It's true. I cannot imagine how hard he worked with no help other than his African volunteers.
Stephen Colbert
None of the kids are ever in school, none of the parents have jobs, vacation from what?

Clean water is important to us,. Decent housing is important to us. But they're not rights. And we have to begin to say that what's important is that we in a rational way are able to reform these programs in a way to save them.
Ken Blackwell.

          Right, semi-clean water is better than nothing.

Because they’re not going to try to put sharia law in our laws.

Stephen Colbert, on the photos of Anthony Weiner that Andrew Breitbart posted yesterday.
I'd love to one day hear a politician get questioned this aggressively about a matter of actual substantive importance.
Jed Lewison, on Anthony Weiners press conference yesterday.
That was the last question I heard shouted by the press over the media din as Anthony Weiner copped to, er, sextweeting? The country is facing potential default, the leader of the GOP is a delusional maniac, the Middle East remains on a knife edge ... and the question in the headline above is still ringing in my ears.
Andrew Sullivan., on the last question at Rep. Anthony Weiner's (D, NY) press conference: "Were you erect?"
Few vegetables arouse stronger emotions than does the Brussels sprout. You either love ’em or hate ’em.

In other words, when you’re a certain kind of famous, there are a few things you’ve just got to give up in life – like uploading pictures of your dick, for instance, or tweet-herding hot twentysomething women by the hundreds. Is it really that hard to find other hobbies? Why do I feel like this kind of thing isn’t a problem for someone like Bernie Sanders?
Matt Taibbi.
President Obama. There’s no question about that.
Haley Barbour, on who has done more damage to the gulf coast, him or BP.
It would be fine it I could just get a sentence out. I know you've got a lot of time to beat up on the President…

If you are a blue collar, hourly worker and you're not the business owner, you're not going to take off or ask your boss to take off unpaid to go to a rally.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
